Conversations at Copia

Each month, we host weekend-long Conversations that explore important topics impacting our everyday lives. Through panels, film, art, and more, we learn about our food system, how we can get involved, and how these discoveries affect us. Each weekend is unique, so we look forward to seeing you every month!
